We will continue to live stream on Facebook at 10:55 am and to broadcast on YouTube and website by 1:00 pm or sooner.
During this time of national health concerns, The Presbyterian Church of the Good Shepherd will continue the CDC guidelines: social distancing and masking for all services because we are concerned about the health and safety of all who attend.
“Please Pass the Mustard”
Mark 4:26-34 26He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. 27Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. 28All by itself the soil produces grain-first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. 29As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.” 30Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? 31It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. 32Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.” 33With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand. 34He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything.
The Presbyterian Church of the Good Shepherd (USA) is a growing congregation. We gather together from across the Melbourne/Palm Bay area to witness to the love of God in Jesus Christ. While some are lifelong Presbyterians, some come from other Christian traditions and backgrounds, or no religious background at all. We welcome the seeker, the devout, and the skeptic alike as we gather to learn, serve, and grow as disciples. We are confident you will find a way to experience and share God’s love at Good Shepherd. Come and See! Join Us!
Thank you for visiting our website. As pastor of Good Shepherd, it is my hope that you will enjoy it as you learn more about our community of faith. Our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey. Together, we are striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible, where there is relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, compassionate care for those in need, and many opportunities to serve others. We strive to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can make a difference in our world today.
You are cordially invited to join us this coming Sunday as our church family gathers to draw near to God through Worship.
Yours in Christ,
Every child has a story. God is dealing with every kid, regardless of how many times they come to church. Treat every Sunday like it is the only Sunday that some kid has. Did they hear about Jesus? Did they feel loved? Did someone ask about them? Nurture these precious children! Whether they are wee little ones or teenagers, we have programs for them all!

COME AND SEE; DO GOOD AND SHARE –
OPERATION HOPE ON FATHERS’ DAY
Our Sharing and Serving Team at Good Shepherd offers us an opportunity to help our community. The upcoming Father’s Day Offering gives us the opportunity to give many in our community small tools that they might need around their homes, i.e., pliers, hammers, handsaws, etc. In the past we have given fans to homes without air conditioning. We are adding hand tools to this gift on Father’s Day. You can leave the tools and fans at the office at the church. Please call ahead first to make sure someone will be there when you drop your gift off: 321-723-9774. As always, a financial donation is always welcome, and we will use it to purchase items. Please be sure to note that it is designated for Father’s Day /Operation Hope. You can mail it to Presbyterian Church of the Good Shepherd, 810 W. Florida Avenue, Melbourne, Florida 32901.
The Serving and Sharing Team stated, “Perhaps we should add ‘do good and share’ to our new adage of ‘come and see!’” The team thanks everyone for sharing what the Lord has provided.
The Music Program
Good Shepherd held a Christmas Eve Service this year which was attended by congregants who observed all Covid protocols. It was a celebration that the church has every year. Everyone enjoyed the singing of carols, the ringing of the bells, the telling of the Christmas Story, and the camaraderie in the sanctuary.

At the Presbyterian Church of the Good Shepherd
Our mission is to help connect people to faith
A Shepherd leads, cares for, and loves his sheep. The sheep knows the voice of their shepherd, they follow him, and him alone. Even the lost lamb is found and carried in the loving arms of his caregiver. At the Presbyterian Church of the Good Shepherd we listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ; we follow the will of our creator God; we are empowered to be obedient sheep through the Holy Spirit. Jesus commanded us to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and mind, and to love one another as he has loved us. That’s our challenge – lead, care for, love, and bring home God’s children. We invite you to join us as we journey and grow in our community of obedient and loving sheep under the care of the Good Shepherd.
Sheep know the voice of their shepherd. If you would like to learn more about the language of sheep, click here. We watched part of this video in a sermon. Watch it all here! COME AND SEE! BAA, BAA, BAA!
